Services for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day

Our Crib Service is on Christmas Eve at 6.00pm. All are welcome, especially families. Shine your light and help us to spread the good news of Christmas with this year’s crib service! Although we have to remain in our pews it will still be interactive for the young people. We would love you to come, please contact churchwarden Roy to reserve a pew, by phoning him on 07413 985731 or by email on [email protected]. We have plenty of pews at the moment so please make every effort to come.

Then, our Midnight Mass is at 11.30pm also on Christmas Eve. This is the first celebration of birth of Jesus and will celebrated by Rev’d Canon Nick Smeeton. Again, we would love to see you there and you can book a pew by contacting me on the above or just come on the night.

On Christmas morning we celebrate the birth of Christ with our Eucharist at 9.00am led by our own Bishop Mark. Again, you can reserve a pew but it is ok to come without booking, we would love to see you.

We are allowed to have these services but have to remind people that the usual social distancing, wearing of masks and the use of hand sanitising is mandatory. The church will be deep cleaned between each service.
